When I'm not busy playing games with you fine folks, I'm usually busy working on adding site features and improvements. Today I bring you not one, but two site additions.
Beat World Tour with a few friends in Rock Band? Shredded faces with a buddy in Guitar Hero 3? Lost pounds of water by sweating too much when you challenge your friends is Dance Dance Revolution?
